6:02 pm
the tornado threat will continue moving into arkansas, louisiana and texas. people may be wondering why don't we see that here because we have air mass changes? that is so warm and humid and so cold and dry we don't get those extremes and if you don't, you're not going to see those storms. that was intense today. >> all right. again, 51 people now confirmed dead and paul, we are going to have more on the tornado damage and the aftermath coming up at 6:30 tonight. in other news tonight, yahoo is paying a steep price to get in with the younger generation. the search engine is paying a billion plus to buy tumblr, a hip social blogging site. kpix 5's len ramirez is joining us live in sunnyvale from yahoo headquarters with details on why this could be a game changer for the struggling internet company. len? >> reporter: elizabeth, we have seen a lot of acquisitions over the years here in silicon valley. this is one of the more interesting ones. we're talking about two very different companies, two different online communities, one of them a silicon valley original, the other a startup
6:03 pm
out of new york city. the question tonight is, will yahoo mix well in a tumblr? it's the deal that has silicon valley talking. >> it's a smart acquisition by yards. >> reporter: a deal bridging a generation gap between a big old school website. >> they are going for the demographic. >> reporter: and the newer cooler more mobile social network. >> i'm concerned. known what they are going to do with it. >> reporter: yahoo agreed to acquire social blogging site tumblr for $1.2 billion. they had to do it to stay relevant in a changing marketplace. >> yahoo has been shopping around for a large site that can infuse it with more youth, mobile users and much more content. tumblr is a logical choice. >> reporter: tumblr has about 300 million monthly users 120,000 new members every day. about 900 new blog postings every second. yahoo's ceo marissa mayer called the deal a game changer for yahoo. >> we couldn't be more
6:04 pm
excited. >> right now it's an 18-year- old brand that lost its mojo. by bringing in tumblr in all those users and content, it's possible for yahoo to be reimagined as a truly 21st century rather than 20th century website. >> reporter: mayer stated that yahoo promises not to screw up tumblr. she says it will be run as a separate company with its current management still calling the shots but some users have their worries. >> tumblr is a free space where we use it for pictures, videos and everything relating to the college experience so i feel like yahoo might limit that maybe take away what makes tumblr free. >> reporter: yahoo does want to better monetize tumblr. >> we use tumblr as a way to tell everybody about our story. >> reporter: one mobile app creator who uses tumblr to blog about his product hose the merger will create more users and business. >> reporter: one of the big
6:05 pm
reasons yahoo wanted tumblr is that it's growing so fast right now. elizabeth, in any event, in the past year, it has tripled its number of mobile users and those mobile users are the ones that yahoo really wants to get because mobile is the future of the internet. >> totally. it's a huge audience there. now, len, does this mean there are going to be a lot more ads on tumblr from now on? >> i think that's safe to say. you're going to see more ads on tumblr. right now if you look at it, it's almost ad-free one of the big attractions for this website. it's a community where people get on, they put their blogs and their photos and their videos, and they don't have to deal with all the ad space. that's probably going to change because yahoo spent a lot of money on this company and want to make the money back and have to do it through advertising. >> thank you. new at 6:00 tonight, apple has avoided paying billions of dollars in income taxes in the u.s. a government panel has found that. the tech giant is apparently
6:06 pm
holding some $102 billion in cash overseas. according to a report from the senate permanent committee on investigations, it's all legal. however, lawmakers say some of the company's tactics are raising questions about loopholes in our country's tax code. apple's top executives are set to testify about that strategy at a committee hearing tomorrow. a 5-year-old girl was killed in a rollover crash in richmond this morning. police say she was not in a child safety seat nor was she wearing a seatbelt when she was thrown out of the suv. only the driver was buckled up. five others in that car including another child and a teenager suffered moderate injuries. the crash happened around 8 a.m. on the richmond parkway near hilltop mall. surrounding streets had to be closed for several hours. the suv was found in the middle of the road with the windshield shattered and its back end dented. >> if you are going to have small children or anybody else in the car they need to be bolted or
6:07 pm
in a child seat. -- seatbelt or in a child seat. >> investigators say speed was a factor in the crash. they say the girl might have survived if she was in a car seat or wearing a seatbelt. a deadly accident this morning in san jose. a teen riding his bike to school wasn't wearing a helmet when he hit a pickup truck in a crosswalk. they are investigating the incident and trying to figure out who had the right of way. it happened at around 7:30 this morning on east capitol expressway and silver creek road. the 16-year-old was a sophomore at silver creek high school which is a couple of blocks away from where the accident happened. the pickup truck driver did stop and is cooperating with the investigation. it's horrible. anytime you know you travel on a roadway, we always urge drivers and bicyclists to always be cautious when they are driving. this intersection in particular is one of our busiest intersections in the city. >> grief counselors were
6:08 pm
brought to silverado high school to help students cope. this is san jose's 14th deadly traffic accident this year. a high school football player died in a hail of gunfire in east palo alto. the bullets pierced this car that 16-year-old jose-luis quinones was sitting in outside his house lat night. three other boys in the car were shot but survived. those boys went to jose's house to tell his father what happened. >> we heard that my children was inside we didn't see my son i went outside to the car and he was there. >> jose's father says the car belonged to someone else so he believes that the homicide is a case of mistaken identity. so far, no arrests. other bay area headlines, a man who fell from a roof at a bay to breakers watch party has died. police say the 28-year-old man accidentally fell from a three- story building yesterday

6:10 pm
u.s. drought monitor says northern california has slipped from abnormally dry to a condition of moderate drought. but hold on. >> drought is a very relative term. it means different things to different people. >> reporter: he says water agencies that deliver to cities and towns may have a different standard for the "d" word than, say, farmers or wildland firefighters. with very little snowpack remaining, the water agencies are depending on what has already directed in the reservoirs. but those levels look good right now. >> lake oroville is at 103% of normal. >> reporter: the contra costa water district gets water from the delta and stores it in loss vie carrows reservoir. they say there is never enough to be wasteful. >> statements about drought will certainly heighten public concern about the availability of water, and if it gets out a message to use water wisely, you bet that's a good thing. >> reporter: but null is uncomfortable with the designation especially when a city like san francisco has actually had a higher
6:11 pm
percentage of normal rainfall this year than last. >> for it to be universally called a drought now, you know, is kind of a disservice. i mean, it sort of takes abay way from when we're -- it takes away from when we're really in a drought. >> reporter: the real drought is when you don't have enough. as we live on the water we've banked in the past, another dry year to begin to make that a reality. in the east bay, john ramos, kpix 5. >> as we head into the driest time of the year and our rain deficit continues to climb this will be a story that will only grow in importance. it's a sigh of relief in a way. but it leaves a lot of questions. >> her boss just turned in her resignation after being accused of misusing public funds. we asked a bay area city manager if his assistant is being forced out. >> has it been worse than this? >> no. i haven't seen anything worse than that right now.
6:12 pm
>> but in order to ease the gridlock, would you be willing to dig into your pocket? how drivers might have to pay just to get into san francisco. >> and coming up at 6:30, a former bay area police officer convicted of dirty dui arrests finally learns his punishment. ,, ,,,,,, ,,

6:15 pm
under fire after a city investigation found she violated policy including double dipping, using a city car, the black prius in her driveway, and still taking a $450 a month car allowance. investigators also said knight improperly directed city workers to make gift baskets with trinkets from her side business during city time and storing them in city offices. earlier this year, some city residents demanded knight be fired. she knew she was facing disciplinary action. >> ranging from -- from nothing if there was nothing that was found to a counseling all the way up through and including termination. >> reporter: you can't tell me if termination was on the table given the findings that they found? >> no, i can't. >> reporter: knight was also guilty of retaliating against her whistle-blower, city library assistant financial manager stacey plummer. >> it's a sigh of relief in a way, but it leaves a lot of questions. >> reporter: plummer says she refused to work for knight's
6:16 pm
side business and she is not happy that knight, who makes an estimated $220,000 salary, gets to resign with a full pension. >> you can misappropriate funds, you can be the hire-er, fire-er, executioner and then have a big retirement after you have done the taxpayer wrong. >> reporter: well, leslie knight did have to pay the city back $10,800. after she leaves the position won't be filled. the boss says she is disappointed with knight but can work with her until she's gone. is it awkward? >> uhm, it's, uhm, you know, it's certainly different. >> reporter: well, leslie knight did have to pay the city back $10,800. that is the amount she took when she was double dipping in the car allowance perk. liz? >> now, linda, do you think the whistle-blower in the case will
6:17 pm
push for further action or is she done,. >> reporter: she is pushing for further action. she is wondering if the district attorney will continue his investigation into possible criminal charges. >> all right. not over yet. linda yee in richmond, thank you. well, the city of san francisco could be facing nonstop gridlock in the near future. now a long discussed alternative is being looked at once again. kpix 5's mike sugerman in san francisco with the pros and cons of what's called congestion pricing. >> reporter: we have a giants game tonight. the embarcadero is jammed trying to get to the freeway, it's a mess, crossing market to get to union square. you don't want any part of it. you know something? this is nothing! these are the good old days. just wait a couple of years. is it me or is this the worst traffic we have seen in san francisco for years? >> it sucks. >> reporter: somewhat inelegant but it's a popular view. has it been worse than this? >> no. i haven't seen anything worse than that right now.
6:18 pm
>> reporter: cabbies know. they sit in it all day. caused by the frenzy of construction san francisco hasn't seen for years. >> it's a good sign. we want our economy to grow and it's great that people want to be here. >> reporter: but when they come, they come with cars and unless traffic is cut by one- fourth of what planners believe, san francisco could be in a state of deadlock. >> we want to plan ahead for that. we want to plan thoughtfully for it. >> reporter: what if it cost you 3 bucks every time you cross this street? would you? or would you just ditch the car and take a bus or not come downtown at all? it's the idea behind congestion pricing. they do it in singapore and london. you pay a toll every time you cross into an area they would rather you not drive. >> it's absurd. >> reporter: it's not popular with drivers and planners say it's just one suggestion bouncing around again along with more bus-only lanes, bike paths, or carpooling. with the money raised by charging to get downtown, upwards of $80 million, you can
6:19 pm
pay for some of that. >> even if we're able to shift some trips off the streets because of better transit or better bicycling, there's more traffic that's going to take its place. >> reporter: they have talked about it for years and it has come up again. it is a hard sell. but maybe the closer we get to permanent gridlock, people may be driven to reconsider. this comes up -- well, two years ago was a big report then just last week it came up again at a hearing. three bucks coming into town, three bucks going out of town. maybe broadway, maybe market. they haven't got the details yet. but something has to be done because the way that they planned this, a lot of cars in san francisco something has to give. >> we have been talking about this forever. why don't they do something? >> reporter: what do you do. there are a lot of people on bikes and buses. they need more people doing all that stuff. >> and the central subway will solve some problems, won't it?
6:20 pm
>> reporter: central subway is causing problems now getting built. maybe it will take people out of their cars. that's left to be seen. >> another piece of the puzzle. thank you, mike sugerman. paul deanno live outside overlooking the bay bridge on another warm day. >> even the city almost hit 80 degrees. over my shoulder some cirrus cloud cover. that's the leading edge of the change that's moving through. now, oklahoma city saw a front today that spawned some f5 tornadoes. we will have a front all that's going to do for us is drop our temperature down but it will be a sharp drop and it will get windy around here not just in the city like it is right now. take you outside the kpix 5 kpix 5 mobile weather lab with alcatraz off in the distance behind the lab. we took it out to crissy field because we have seen a sharp temperature drop as the sea breeze kicked in. we gone from the upper 70s to the low 70s in a matter of minutes and that cooler air will spread all the way inland. if you were in the 90s today away from the water, you'll be 20 degrees colder this time
6:21 pm
tomorrow. let's review some of the highs from today. healdsburg you hit 92 degrees. gilroy 91. concord and mountain view 89 degrees. kiss that good-bye because of the big change coming up tomorrow. now, this change will not involve any rainfall. kpix 5 hi-def doppler is completely dry. no rain coming. a little cloudy overnight tonight. satellite and radar review shows a large area of low pressure sitting offshore. as it gets closer, it will crank up the onshore flow and drag down some air all the way from the arctic, this stuff was literally over the arctic circle about two or they days ago and now it will be moving into northern california. bottom line, it's going to be much cooler starting tomorrow. here are some highs tomorrow. oakland 80 degrees today. 67 tomorrow. san jose from near 90 down to 72. downtown san francisco only 62. and livermore and vallejo only in the low 70s. here's your extended forecast. now, mind you, it's not going to be cold. not even going to be cloudy. we are going to have sunshine all the way to the coast. not going to have that morning fog but it will be chilly relative to normal especially compared to the past couple of days. i'm looking at low to mid-70s
6:22 pm
inland through the holiday weekend. mid- to upper 60s near the bay. and highs hanging out right around 60 at the coastline. so the winds of change already blowing into san francisco and the city and those winds of change will be howling tomorrow. 20 degrees colder by tomorrow afternoon. reporting from the rooftop of kpix 5, chief meteorologist paul deanno. back to you in the studio. >> thank you. and we're continuing to follow breaking news out of oklahoma where schoolchildren are being pulled out of the rubble as the school is leveled by a tornado. the astonishing amount of damage from a mile-wide twister. at this time tomorrow, we'll know if the bay area is going to host "super bowl l." what it's going to take to seal the deal. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

6:34 pm
the u.s. attorneys office would then drop six other felony charges and ask for 14 to 17 years in prison. then wielsch got a new attorney and defense strategy and asked today for home confinement. >> in norman's mind, he has been unfairly singled out because he's a cop. and as the cord said, you know, i need to sentence in such a way that the public, you know, doesn't lose respect for the courts and can trust its police officers who know that there's hell to pay if they get caught doing something. >> the judge didn't hand out the harshest sentence that she could have. but she did make it clear as a former police officer he needs to go to prison. so she sentenced wielsch to 14 years. it's believed he will spend at least 12 years in jail. the judge fined him $150,000. well, it's a pretty big issue. i drive across that bridge. >> but will the new span open on time?

6:39 pm
bolts had snapped and that serious questions were being raised about another 92. >> look, these bolts fail, they got to go look at the records. some of those records are 10 years old. one of the companies was from texas, another one from ohio. we have to dig through to get the records to know what's there and then they have to test all these bolts and make sure the bridge will be safe. >> reporter: brown's comments come as tests are still being conducted on the questionable bolts with a final decision tentatively scheduled for later this month. they also come just after a report was published in the "sacramento bee" raising questions about possible corrosion problems on steel tendons on the bridge as well, a problem bridge builders say they have already dealt with. >> this was an issue that we encountered back in 2006-2007 during construction. we took precautions to protect the steel tendons. we coated them with a powder to protect them from corrosion. this issue of corrosion only affected less than 2% of the steel tendons in the skyway. the skyway is safe.
6:40 pm
>> reporter: the governor, however, wants to be sure. so you're personally getting involved in this? >> well, it's a pretty big issue. i drive across that bridge, too. >> reporter: as the governor said some of the questions being raised date back to 10 years ago. and reconstruction who did what when is proving to be a bit more difficult than they anticipated. on treasure island, phil matier, kpix 5. >> and kpix 5 is the official television station for the bay bridge opening ceremony. as of now, the countdown to labor day is still on. we're watching and keeping you updated on the progress of the new eastern span. coming up, a sneaky way your neighbors can spy on you for just $300. and it's legal. >> good evening, to you. meteorologist paul deanno from the rooftop of kpix 5. it's not only going to be windy in the city come tomorrow. wait until you see the temperature drop. i'll have it in the forecast coming up. i'm dennis o'donnell.
